Okay, so it’s not exactly a reunion but at this point, Outkast fans will just have to take what they can get.
Last night, Rap Radar premiered “Pink Matter” the remix by Frank Ocean which features both Andre 3000 and Big Boi. The original version, featured on Ocean’s debut album Channel Orange only had a verse from 3000. Big Boi revealed months ago that Frank Ocean asked him to be on the song as well but Andre didn’t want an Outkast reunion to happen on anyone else’s song or album.
Luckily for the fans, Andre doesn’t necessarily speak for the group. Big Boi has hopped on the song and those of us who have been waiting for anything that sounds like the group can take this and let it hold you over. The reality is there will probably not be an Outkast album coming out anytime soon. Andre seems to be interested in other things, primarily movies and features on other peoples’ singles and Big Boi…well, he can’t put an Outkast album out on his own. They’re still under contract so they owe their label albums but as we know, many artists just sit that out for the rest of their careers.
Anyway, Miss Info has the song and listen kids, it’s pretty explicit so get your fans ready.
By the way, would you be interested in a new Outkast album or do you think their time has passed?
